Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

QPR boss Harry Redknapp has warned the club that he must be given freedom to move in the transfer martket this summer or else he could walk away, Sky Sports reports.

The former Spurs boss wants to build a side capable of making an instant return to the Premier League and hopes to make Wayne Bridge his first signing.

Bridge has just spent the season on loan with Brighton but his contract with Manchester City is set to expire at the end of the month and Redknapp wants to meet with owner Tony Fernandes to discuss the rest of his transfer plans for the coming months.

“If we don’t change it, and I don’t get the players that I want to bring in, then we have not got a chance,” Redknapp declared.

“You can’t have other people have a say at all, I’m a football person and I’ve got a staff around me of football people.

“We’ve got to make the decisions, and if we make the right ones we will have a chance. Otherwise, if other people want to make decisions we’ve got no chance.

“If I don’t get that then I wouldn’t stick around. I’ll speak to Tony Fernandes, they’ve got to back me with the people I want. I’m not asking him to spend money, I’m looking at a couple of free transfers.

“I’m trying to get Wayne Bridge, I thought he did fantastically well with Brighton, he’d be a good left-back for us. He’s got great experience, looks in great shape and is a player I want to bring in on a free.

“I’m hoping that’s the first deal I can do. Tony is away, but I’ll speak to him today and see if we can get the deal done.”
